Great Car Except For Water Trails Behind It..
Every time we drive the car and after doing approx 5 to 10 kms it leaves trails of water from both exhaust pipes...Holden dealer and customer service say this is normal for all zb 4 cylinder commodores....I expect some water at start up for a few moments but not after driving for over 10 or so mins in low humidity.....Any one else have this trouble...The photo attached is after the car was driven 9 kms on a fine sunny day ...

We picked up our ZB RS 2.0L turbo last week. It has 5500km on it first registered in Oct 18. I am really impressed, i have owned a number of Holden in the past (VH Commodore, WH Statesman Gen3, VE SS, VF SS LS3) and they have all been great but this one is light years ahead. I think the people who slam this car have never driven one and can't move on from Aussie manufacturing being closed. Sure it is a bit smaller than the VF but is bigger than the VT. I test drove a Subaru, and a Camry (Camry looked good but very disappointing to drive, it was...like a gutless whale compared to ZB) and the Commodore is far superior. I drove both the 2.0L T and the V6 AWD. Look i nearly grabbed the V6 but went with the 4 cylinder. This thing is quick, certainly quicker than the VF SV6 and i think it would be quicker than the WH with the LS1 5.7L. People just need to remember the first commodore came from Germany and now it has gone back to its' roots. Shame that holden don't have a V8 in it, it would be lethal or perhaps a twin turbo 6 to replace the V8 but i just read they are bringing out the new mid engine Corvette as RHD so that will tick that box for the price of a HSV GTS. I say go and drive one you may get a suprise.

Questions & Answers
The ZB Commodore GPS does not have Traffic Sign Recognition not does it have current speed limit displayed for the road. This was available on the VF. Are there plans too have this feature made available? As the opel insignia and Buick regal both have it as does ds the Vauxhall insignia.
Pre-Acadia vehicles, Holden had no Australian traffic sign database. Which is why there is no traffic sign recognition on Commodore or Astra.
OK. But you would think they would be able to offer it now or at least use a GPS infotainment that has it built in. The VF Calais has Speed Limit database with all the speed limits for all the roads and this is updated over the air through the GPS service. It is built into its GPS so why not the ZB? A backward step I say.
